Coyote Capital Management (CCM) placed first in the 2018 Quinnipiac G.A.M.E. forum in New York City last month.
The forum takes place with over 150 colleges and universities in attendance.
Sophia Lima, sophomore accounting major and president of CCM, said it was “rewarding to be recognized for our achievements.”
“We’ve known that we performed pretty well last year but to kind of get that recognition is pretty great especially when you’re competing against great schools,” Lima said.
CCM submitted one of three portfolios which was the foundation portfolio. This portfolio manages money from the foundation by CCM students.
Lima said the G.A.M.E. forum was a way for colleges and universities to learn from industry leaders.
“It’s a great networking event because there are such high level people there so you can learn from them and develop those connections to hopefully use in the future,” Lima said.
CCM was going to go to the forum in late March, however, with the Nor’easter effecting much of the east coast, their trip was canceled.
Lima said that even though the group could not attend, the competition did not require the group to be present.
“The entire competition is just your portfolio being judged. Whatever you submit, the results are based of off,” Lima said. “So basically your portfolio performance and then also composition, how many people are in your organization.”
Lima said she’s grateful for the support CCM has been getting.
“I’m just really grateful for all of the support (from the) Beacom School of Business, the foundation,” Lima said. “Thanks to their support we had the opportunity to get experience for our members in CCM.
